2015 Project 365 – Week Twenty-four

This week was all about crochet and growing things…

Sunday, June 7th
Today I took (not very good) pictures of two more completed squares.

And then I took another walk in a cemetery. The headstone of the two little boys was especially poignant. Apparently they were killed in an accident, so their families buried them together. Also, if you’ll remember from the pictures I posted last week I saw a fawn in the cemetery. Well, today I saw three deer. I’m enjoying my walks there, even though one of the deer stomped her foot at me.

Monday, June 8th  
Speaking of deer, Dr. M saw a couple on his way to school today. As well as a few other critters :)

Tuesday, June 9th            
Look at Pinky – she’s doing so well these days! I was pretty worried back in May, but she has definitely rebounded. Next week I’ll bet I’ll be posting pictures of her flowers.

Finished the last square in this pattern (remember, I’m making four blankets – these squares don’t all go together!).

 Wednesday, June 10th     
Sometimes I really do despair of ever being able to park well.

But Dr M’s pictures of hay rolls cheered me up quite a bit. He knows I love them…          

I worked on a sadly neglected prayer shawl. I need to finish this thing!  

Thursday, June 11th     
Did I finish the prayer shawl? No, but that didn’t stop me from crocheting something else. These are dishcloths.

I roamed around the yard taking pictures of growing things. Some of our daylily scapes are so tall!

Dr. M took pictures of the daisies after the rain.


Friday, June 12th
I got an award at work – stability is one of our company values. I think I got it because they can’t get rid of me. Heh.

Now I’m onto something new (and no, the shawl is not done): Preemie hats! So tiny! Our local hospital uses 50 a week (a month? Something crazy). As you might imagine, they go very quickly, so I’m going to try to do several a week.  

Saturday, June13th                
I crocheted another hat while we were driving up to Dr M’s school for a graduation party (for one of his high schoolers who’ve been taking college classes at his school).

On our way home we stopped for groceries & I saw these. Ha! I can’t believe I didn’t buy them… What I want to know is, where are the patriotic Cadbury eggs? Hmm?

Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. I seriously doubt they'd like to get rid of you at work. You're a treasure.

  2. When I first glanced at the prayer shawl, before I realized what it was, I thought I saw a bed of flowers.

    Love love love the daisies with the rain drops!

    And I can see why you like your job - a company that appreciates and values stability has got to be a decent place to work for. Too many companies these days just tend to chew up their employees and spit them out.

  3. Toads!

    Love those guys, my hometown use to me covered in them back in the 1970's.

  4. July 4th Peeps! I love it! Now THAT's extending the brand.

    I also love Dr. M's daisies-in-the-rain shots.

    Cemeteries make fascinating places for a walk, don't they? I wonder what Olga would do if she saw a deer...

  5. As always, the toads are charming.

  6. "Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flowers?" Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail. Watched it yesterday again. Such a cute movie.
    I think cemeteries are fascinating.
    Stunning toad pics!
    I cannot grasp your level of crochet-productivity! Must be your STABILITY!

  7. I love those photos of the rain-spattered daisies. My compliments to Dr. M.

    And there have been reports of wildlife in our area recently too. Think I'll blog about that today.

  8. Love your week. I think they should outlaw Peeps except for Easter. Just ain't right.

  9. love your week in pictures. 50 premie hats a week? even 50 a month is a lot. why so many premie babies? I suppose it could have something to do with the fact that the US has the second worst infant mortality rate and we rank 50th in maternal death rate.

  10. You are so productive - well done on the award!!!

  11. When my son was a toddler, we drove by a field full of those round hay bales, and he said, "Look at all the elephants."

    Funny how cemeteries can be so peaceful, and some of them are very beautiful.

    So happy to hear that Pinky survived and will thrive. Looking forward to the pix of her blooms.

  12. Patriotic peeps? Good gosh. I don't know what to think about that. I was ok when they brought out Christmas peeps, sort of. At least they aren't dipped in chocolate. I love chocolate and I love marshmallow, but together? Not so fond.

    And by the way -- I have been meaning and meaning to stop by and tell you how much I appreciated your words of encouragement re: the eye surgery. I have one appointment left now, and they I think they'll turn me loose. I'm 20/20 both eyes, and having a whee of a time, just walking around looking at stuff. I still have trouble with teeny tiny print, but I'm talking things like the fine print on a Tylenol bottle. No one can read. that. I don't think we're supposed to. :-)


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
